Market Background

Tunisia’s transition to democracy made remarkable progress. The country ratified a democratic constitution, a general election ushered in a new parliament forming a national unity government with four of the five largest parties, while welcoming its first democratically elected president.

Tunisia has high expectations for economic growth, and President Caid Essebsi has called for structural reforms to overcome substantial economic challenges. These include a revised investment code; a new public-private partnership law; and reforms to banking, taxes, and customs. Enacting these reforms will be essential for attracting foreign and domestic investment.

Tunisia has a highly diversified economy. With a population of slightly over 10 million, it has one of the highest standards of living on the continent and prospered under long-standing government policies to develop manufacturing, tourism and agriculture. The high education level of the active population combined with sound macroeconomic management and the quality of public institutions offer particularly favourable conditions for doing business.
